Even though Jaden Smith, the peyote baby of a Pure Moods CD and a stoned Socrates, is anti-school, he’s been working the Los Angeles-area high school prom circuit hard during the last couple of weeks. Jaden went to new levels of “You So Edgy” two weeks ago when he went to someone’s prom done up like a virginal groom Batman. Jaden was back on the prom scene on Friday night when he took actress Amandla Stenberg from The Hunger Games to her high school prom.
I woke up this morning to a million “JADEN SMITH WORE A DRESS TO A PROM” headlines. Based on those headlines and the fact that Jaden is a thought-provoking performance artiste, I figured that he wore a backless, lace gown with cutouts as commentary on high school girls getting kicked out of prom for wearing dresses that teachers think are “too revealing.” But nope, he just wore some plain dress over black skinny jeans. That look is very “butcher going to a business meeting.”
Where is the glamour? Where is the social commentary? Where is the controversy?!
Since Jaden is into wearing dresses and is into the 90s, he should go all the way at the next prom he goes to by wearing a knock-off version of Demi Moore’s Indecent Proposal dress. If Jaden can’t find one, he can ask one of my high school friends, because 4 out of 5 of them wore that shit to prom.
After the cut are more pictures of Amandla and the Indigo Child whose power is the ability to melt our brains with his deep thoughts.
